ASSOCIATED BAPTIST PRESS INC. ^ | MARCH 14, 2014 | Greg Warner

Posted on 03/14/2014 7:56:30 PM PDT by moonshinner_09

No one objects when missions personnel feed the hungry or attend to the sick. But is advocacy on behalf of immigrants and refugees also part of the gospel?

Obeying the laws of the land are also part of the gospel. Entering a country illegally , emphasis on illegally, is also against the gospels.

If these illegals were around when Jesus fed the masses with fish, these clowns would have pestered Jesus to make more fish for another 10 days and bully Him to speak their language.

Illegals? Free-loaders who steal, lie, and break the law to get into the country? Then molest our children, kill our people, and laugh in the face of our laws and culture? It’s intolerable.

It goes back to the Social Gospel introduced almost 150 years ago. Leftist claptrap nourished the entire time by progressives.

Pelosi is mentioned in the first line. The article is a history lesson.

“But is advocacy on behalf of immigrants and refugees also part of the gospel?

The MAIN issues of immigration & amnesty are separate and distinct in law, context and custom from “illegal immigration” in this modern age and not near the same as “migration” in the classical or late biblical era.

The question to you might be, what would you do if you were in their shoes?
I was totally, 100% against it! because my stepson was.ousted from good-paying painting and construction jobs.
Then I put myself in their shoes.

Heck yes, I’d jump the fence, too. Have you been to Mexico? I have, over 20 times. In fact, I have been to 27 countries. If I lived In the places I have treated to, I’d do whatever it took to get into the USA. Period.
Think about it.

Then really ask, as Jesus is the creator of all human beings, and values all lives the same, having formed them in their mother’s wombs the same as you, knowing them just as well as He knows you....what would YOU do?
What would HE think?
Take a minute to ponder before replying, please.

This article is for passing the Senate Amnesty bill , that is 1200 pages of advancement of socialism, inundating the USA with 3rd world socialist immigrants and creating millions of democrat voters and helping the democrat/marxist party.

this is what you are for

I tried responding to this with a comment on the site, but how do you argue with such deluded and determined ‘right’ thinkers?

These morons live in a completely surreal universe and immune to any sort of logic.

There are legal ways to emigrate to the US. Just as you had legal ways to visit dozens of countries.

I'd love to just show up in countries that would take care of me, too, but it's appropriately considered illegal to do that without permission.

Just because someone has a good reason to lust or covet someone else’s situation, that doesn't mean you take it for yourself.

You are condoning coveting, breaking laws, and stealing from others by endorsing having illegals come here.

How often do you call Satan, God and God, Satan? It appears you have your Bible confused with something else.

Sick.

There is a DIFFERENCE between “support for immigrants” and encouraging an uncontrolled flood of ILLEGAL immigration for the purposes of CREATING A DEPENDENT CLASS OF VOTERS, TO SUSTAIN PERPETUAL POWER AND CONTOL.

The Amnesty bill will mean the destruction of the USA and freedom and the victory for socialism/evil

you others supporting immigration are for the dissolution of the USA and the ending of freedom

Cool. Then let these people go to Mexico and insist that Mexico give amnesty and welfare to illegals from Guatemala and Honduras. Let them demand that Argentina and Paraguay stop deporting Illegal Bolivians and let them tell Australia that they are wrong to turn away “boat people” from Afghanistan. After they have succeeded in those tasks, I might read this press release.

And, by misinterpreting the gospel and rationalizing that the reason these people are breaking our laws, taking our resources and undermining OUR ability to do good, for the good of this country, we neglect the real reason why these people are doing what they are doing.

You totally ignore the fact that it is their government that creates the problem - Mexico, et al and it will be forever thus if we blindly ‘open our arms’ until we are inundated with them and suffocate from the load.

Rather, the attention that you propose we give these illegals should be steadfastly focused at fixing our own government so that it can rightly exert the pressure on Mexico et al to fix their own problems.

you are a socialist

and that you all who are for the Amnesty bill and immigration also advocate the invasion by these 3rd world scum to end the United states and our freedom and the stealing of our property and birthright makes you a traitor and evil

Let me help you out here.

Christ is concerned about INDIVIDUALS being charitable toward those in need, including immigrants.

Christ would NOT advocate a POLITICAL STRATEGY specifically designed to UNDERMINE THE POLITICAL STRUCTURE OF THE GOVERNMENT. (Vote Buying and a new population of dependent voters.)

Flooding the market with cheap labor CONDEMNS LEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND MINORITY WORKERS TO SLAVE WAGES.

Encouraging ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION condemns the country of origin to continued failed economic policies and corrupt governments.

You are not looking through the eyes of Jesus.

Are the people of Mexico as bad off as slaves? I would say not. However, this is what the NT says about being a slave:

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)

So, are you going to say that Jesus isn’t seeing slaves through His own eyes? Maybe your defense will be that He wasn’t alive to read Ephesians to know better?

You have a perverted mind. Jesus would not condone illegal trespass and taking of benefits from others under any circumstance.
